    2020 Cosmos Festival

    If you love the scent of flowers or even the beautiful look that some may have, this is one festival that you don't want to miss! There will be about 5 million cosmos flowers on display at the Cosmos Festival 2020 in Nago. And, not everyone is the same: They will have reds, pinks, and white...

    DISCUSS South Park Beach, Itoman: Sunset

    Sunsets in Okinawa are fascinating to watch if you can catch them. Sometimes they drift slowly behind clouds on a rainy or cloudy day, always making their way to the East China Sea; they typically only spread rays of whites, but you can sometimes get a break and see some yellows in there. Either...

    GUIDE Usage of "Okinawa Photographers" Forum

    We certainly have the space to attach a RAW file (DNG preferable) to any image posted, even if you choose to post a smaller output of 2048 on the long end (Photoshop CC) if you choose to "Attach files" within a thread. Though we would prefer you to use the Media Gallery, create your own album...

    Umikaji Terrace Beer On Senaga Island

    A day late, but still fitting as a Tuesday treat and a throwback Thursday! I had to pull the ole Rebel T6i box out the closet to see the receipt and the purchase date: 12/09/2016—been shooting 3-years now and my work has come a long way. This is actually a re-edit of an old post made on here on...

    Photo Op A Split Screen Saturday

    A SPLIT-SCREEN SATURDAY up in cold, wet, and windy SATE VILLAGE, along Highway 58 (old Highway 1) north of Okuma. I took this a few years ago, but it reminds me of the weather here in Okinawa yesterday and today. Actually, I wish I was up there, but, I'm stuck at home for other things...
  8. Route 58 Through Downtown Naha

    Route 58 Through Downtown Naha

    Route 58 through central Naha can have some of the worst traffic ever. Today, I imagined that there wasn't a car insight, and I could get home in about 5 minutes as opposed to the usual 30. That, however, was just a dream. The reality is, traffic on Okinawa isn't the greatest, but this route is...

    Scenic Spot Nirai Kanai Bridge Observation Deck

    The Nirai Kanai Bridge Observation Deck provides one of the most spectacular views Okinawa has to offer. The two connected bridges—the Nirai Bridge and Kanai Bridge—wrapping gracefully around a forested view in the foreground with spectacular views of Komaka Island and Kudaka Island resting in...

    Photo Op Romantic & Fun Swing

    Here's a ROMANTIC SWING hung from a very cool tree. It's meant as a photo spot to seat a Bride & Groom, a romantic couple, or a few little kids holding flowers and being cute... or whatever you want. This natural "set piece" is at the SAME PLACE as the Romantic Stairs with the "SO HAPPY" sign...

    Scenic Spot Ginowan By-pass Seawall

    If you're looking for an urban setting in the Ginowan area along a seawall to either photograph or to watch the perfect sunset in a diffusely populated area, the seawall behind the Ginowan By-pass (leading to Camp Foster) is the place to be. The pinned location leads you to a great viewing spot...

    Adventure Sunsets of Okinawa

    I don't consider myself a professional photographer—not even by a long shot. I'm still learning the tricks and trade of photography and working with I got to get my preferred style down. There are some interesting shots that I like to chase, one of which being an adventurous hunt of sunsets on...
